NCIS (2017): S15E07 – Burden of Proof


The fifteenth season of the police procedural drama NCIS was originally broadcast between 26 September 2017 and 22 May 2018.


Convicted felon Gabriel Hicks swears that NCIS framed him for murder a decade ago, so Gibbs begins his own investigation starting with a new autopsy by Ducky, and quickly determine 2 serious issues: the killer was left-handed whilst Hicks is right-handed, and there was a mysterious witness who was never found. Senior FBI Agent Fornell (Joe Spano) joins the team, since he was the lead investigator in the original joint FBI and NCIS case, but only to convince Gibbs that Hicks is lying. When the witness is found, Gibbs learns that not only was Hicks not the person they saw, but Fornell found her at the time and buried this evidence to convict Hicks. Forced to choose between destroying his friend’s career or keeping an innocent man imprisoned, Gibbs reveals the evidence and Hicks is released. Gibbs later discovers that Hicks is in fact ambidextrous, meaning he played them all.
